Review Notes: This cigar had been resting in the humi for about 3 months; I bought the $10 3-pack from the website. For the price it was a great value, but I wouldn't spend $8-$10 per stick for this brand. The flavor was earthy, with a little cedar and cocoa but it wasn't complex enough to hold my attention. From the look of the ads, Macanudo is trying to pass these smokes off as the new luxury cigar. I think that this is kind of like comparing a Hyundai to a Mercedes. Sure it's just as fast, and has all of the same features, but a luxury Hyundai should be compared to a Nissan Maxima, or a fully loaded Toyota, not a fine German automobile. This cigar should be compared to the likes of Don Tomas or Partagus red band not brands like Graycliff, Padron, or Ashton VSG. Cigars from these brands are truly premium cigars. That being said, the remaining 2 sticks that I have may be a good golf course gar. The nice burn and the easy taste may be better served in a golf cart, and not on a lazy Saturday afternoon among friends.
